I can change it round & I wanna be a paperback (cookbook) writer

OK, it's no secret that I have a strong affection for The Beatles. After publishing Recipe Records the 60's Edition last fall, I was approached by someone who asked if I could come up with enough recipes for a Beatles cookbook.  Could I??? Uh... were the Beatles British? While I am never going to be an expert in Beatles facts, I enjoy sharing the interesting trivia that I read. We are fortunate in this day & age to have so many interesting authors, researchers and fan-experts and I get satisfaction from sharing stories & facts in my blog, radio show and now cookbook.

Written in the usual Recipe Records style, I'm sharing 50 recipes for 50 years of the Fab 4. I couldn't think of a better way to pay homage to the band and perhaps spark a new interest in them by younger generations or folks who are casual fans. It's time to rediscover this great band.

You'll find delicious recipes & interesting information about the lads from Liverpool.  Enjoy an authentic recipe for "Scouse," a dish native to only Liverpool, submitted by British author David Bedford.  Some of my other favorites include I Should've Known Butter, Strawberry Pie Forever, The White Album Fondue, Let It Brie, Stuffed Sgt. Peppers, Lady Medallions, Ob-La-Di Ob-La Slaw and Roll Up For the Magical Mystery Wrap. I've even dedicated a chapter to the movies of the Beatles and their solo careers.

In order to appeal to the diehard Beatle fan, I tried to be clever with recipe titles & created a few that will undoubtedly evoke a tiny little smile, and an "ahhh yes...".... ie: Mundo Paparazzi Ziti, I Relish Her Majesty, Phase One In Which Doris Gets Her Oats Cookies, George Martinis and more.

I am grateful to all friends, family and readers that continue to support my book endeavors. The book business is a really difficult one to be in--just ask Borders and Barnes & Noble. The business part of the book is enough to bring on chest pains and while it goes along with the territory, I find it difficult to ask people to buy my books. I also recognize that our fast culture creates short attention spans. That being said, I'm asking a favor... would you please pre-order your copy now?  It's the book business part that robs me of proper sleep.....
As with all of the Recipe Records cookbooks, it's enjoyable to share food & music with other people. Those two things bring people together & Recipe Records is one more way to bring joy into your kitchen.

If You Can't Take The Beat...... Get Out Of The Kitchen...

Peace, Love & The Beatles,
